Did you know?
If you feel constantly sad or tired for many days in a row and have little to no joy going through your days, you may be experiencing depression and should try to get some help. Note that your levels of estrogen and progesterone, which increased tenfold during pregnancy, will drop sharply after delivery. This sudden drop can increase your sadness. So, if you feel down or blue now, you are at higher risk of serious postpartum depression after birth and would need professional help.
